Learning Canadian Criminal Law
Find Full Text
This fifteenth edition continues to focus on tools students must acquire to be effective criminal lawyers, including critical skills. The aim is to explore substantive principles and the trial context: the adversary system, how elements of crime are proved, principles of act and fault, legal justifications and excuses, and sentencing principles. Integrated throughout is a consideration of the impact of the Charter. The focus is on major sources: the Criminal Code itself and key judicial decisions. Learning is facilitated by notes, questions, problems and general review questions.In this edition we made a special effort to thoroughly update, re-edit, prune or delete dated material. Particularly major changes were made in chapters 1 and 4.
